Ben Rhydding Methodist Church is a warm and friendly place, welcoming all - believers, doubters and seekers - to share in its life. It is an outward looking church and is committed to finding creative ways to engage with and serve the community. There have been exhibitions and festivals in which local schools take part. There are regular events such as Musical afternoons and Thinking Point evenings. It is a Fair Trade church and there is a regular Fair Trade stall after the morning service on the second Sunday of the month as well as Fair Trade tea parties from time to time. On almost every Friday of the year the church offers a Soup Lunch, which is a happy social gathering for the community. In addition the church's facilities are in constant use by groups for activities such as baby massage, badminton, karate, dancing, bridge, stroke support and philosophy.
Its congregation enjoys a traditional style of worship and likes to be theologically challenged. It welcomes the opportunity for quiet and reflective worship, drawing on the beauty of the Arts and Crafts building. It is a generous community, raising money for a variety of causes including an annual charity chosen by members.
